Famine threatens the city, the citizens’ hunger swells to an appetite for change, and on returning from the field Coriolanus must confront the march of realpolitik and the voice of an angry people. Showing in our cinema. ENCORE SCREENINGS 3rd Feb 7pm plus further ones to be announced!

Of Mice and Men The story of George Milton and Lenny Small, two very different men bound together by providence. Set against the backdrop of the American Great Depression, they hatch a plan to leave their life of poverty behind and start anew. It seems so simple, and perhaps that’s what is so beautiful about it, but little do they know, fate still has a hand to play. John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men has become staple of British theatre. His gripping and dramatic tale of two men with a single dream is told bravely and in stunning detail by Tin Shed Theatre Co. Mae drama John Steinbeck erbyn hyn yn un o glasuron y theatr Brydeinig. Cyflwynir ei stori afaelgar a dramatig am ddau ddyn sy’n rhannu’r un freuddwyd mewn modd hynod fentrus ac effeithiol. Post Show Talk after both performances. Workshop available.

Hijinx Theatre’s Drama Pods A double-bill of attentiongrabbing theatre Pithy, topsy-turvy and utterly engaging, Hijinx Theatre presents two brand new one-act dramas that will meddle with your perspective on life and make you question the way you see things. Each performed by one actor with learning disabilities and one without, these intimate twohanders reveal a spark of truth, imagination and comedy at close quarters that will stay with you for days. The dramas are part of a new collection of five short theatre pieces, or ‘pods’, on tour in 2014. Meet the creative teams behind each of the dramas at a postshow discussion immediately after the second show. Dramâu Bach Theatr Hijinx: dau gynhyrchiad theatr sy'n hoelio'r sylw Bachog, ar ben i lawr ac yn hynod afaelgar, mae Hijinx Theatre yn cyflwyno dwy ddrama un act newydd a fydd yn chwarae ar eich persbectif ar fywyd ac yn gwneud i chi gwestiynu’r ffordd rydych yn gweld pethau.

Nearly 400 years old, it is a vast, 1500 page attempt to identify the causes, symptoms and cures for all kinds of melancholy. Written by vicar and librarian Robert Burton it contains all the wisdom of its age – arcane, outlandish and hilarious. Yet, amidst all the wild stories and suppositions, much of its advice remains as urgent and profound now as it did then.

Arc: Three people find themselves stranded together, suspended in the air. Every Action: Four strangers meet before twenty-five metres of suspended rope. As they explore this elevated set of scales, they discover a world where everything you do will affect someone, somewhere. Memento Mori: An award winning, powerful duet performed on a suspended metal frame. Ockham’s Razor are funded by Arts Council England.

The Selfish Giant

Screams echo through corridors. A forest echoes with the sound of gunfire. At Claire’s choir rehearsal, something terrible happens. David Greig’s daring new play asks how far forgiveness will stretch in the face of atrocity. Featuring local choirs and a soaring soundtrack, The Events tells of tragedy, obsession and our destructive desire to fathom the unfathomable. “A poignant look at human tragedy.” — *****, The Metro “A fiendishly brilliant new play.” — ****, WhatsOnStage.com Ages 14+ Mae drama newydd feiddgar David Greig yn gofyn pa mor bell y gall maddeuant ymestyn yn wyneb erchylltra. Yn nodweddu corau lleol a thrac sain esgynnol mae’r darn yn sôn am drasedi, obsesiwn a’n dyhead dinistriol i ddeall yr annealladwy. Ar gyfer oedran 14+.

By Oscar Wilde The Selfish Giant owns a beautiful garden in which children love to play after returning from the school. On the giant's return from seven years visiting his friend the Cornish Ogre, he takes offence at the children and builds a wall to keep them out. He puts up a notice board “TRESSPASSERS WILL BE PROSECUTED”. The garden falls into perpetual winter. The talents of the Arts Centre Stage School are delighted to present this timeless classic from the great Oscar Wilde in the intimacy of the studio theatre. Suitable for children aged 5+ Mae’n bleser gan dalentau Ysgol Lwyfan y Ganolfan gyflwyno clasur poblogaidd Oscar Wilde yn awyrgylch agos atoch y stiwdio gron. Yn addas ar gyfer plant 5+

Poorboy Theatre (Scotland)

Pirates and Mermaids Cameron has moved to New York; Eilidh is still in rural Scotland. Two lovers, two continents, safely sharing two ways of life on mobile phones and video technology – until one comes to visit! A stunning performance, using modern technology, about the universal story of a long distance relationship. Mae Cameron wedi ymfudo i Efrog Newydd; mae Eilidh, ei gariad, yn parhau i fyw yng nghefn gwlad yr Alban. Dau gariad a dwy ffordd o fyw. Perfformiad gafaelgar a rhyngweithiol sy’n adrodd stori oesol am yr her o gynnal perthynas mewn dau gyfandir ac yn holi a yw hi’n haws i wneud hynny yn oes y ffôn symudol a thechnoleg fideo?

Refiw Am Y Rhyfel Byd Cyntaf

Animal Farm

REFIW 2014 i nodi’r Rhyfel Byd Cyntaf

By George Orwell Adapted by Ian Wooldridge

Wrth lwyfannu Hwyliau’n Codi llynedd bwriad Bara Caws oedd gweld os oedd ‘rifíw gymunedol o’r hen deip’ yn dal i ddiddanu heddiw. Cawsom ymatebion cadarnhaol rif y gwlith – yn alwadau ffôn, yn llythyrau ac e-byst, yn negeseuon ar y cyfryngau cymdeithasol ac ar lafar – felly yn sgil llwyddiant ysgubol y cynhyrchiad, mae Bara Caws yn bwriadu teithio rifíw newydd o amgylch Cymru yn ystod Gwanwyn 2014, fydd yn nodi dechrau’r Rhyfel Byd Cyntaf. Drwy wahodd yr un cast a gymerodd ran yn Hwyliau’n Codi yn ôl atom i gydlunio’r sgript a’i pherfformio, bydd y broses greadigol ei hun yn mynd â ni nôl at ddull gwreiddiol Cwmni Bara Caws o greu, ac yn rhyw dalu gwrogaeth i’r criw a sylfaenodd y Cwmni yn y lle cyntaf.

At Mr Jones' farm, Old Major gathers together his animal friends to tell them about his wonderful dream, where animals live free from the tyranny of the humans. When Old Major dies, and Jones forgets to feed the animals, the pigs put into effect their plan for rebellion – and four legs good, two legs bad seems to work for a while on Animal Farm... until some of the animals become more equal than others.

Bara Caws Theatre Company go on tour around Wales with their new ‘community review’ marking the start of the First World War.

George Orwell's 1945 satire on the perils of Stalinism has proved long-lived as a parable about totalitarianism anywhere. Mae gwaith dychanol George Orwell a ysgrifennwyd ym 1945 am beryglon Staliniaeth wedi sefydlu ei hun fel dameg a all fod yn berthnasol i dotalitariaeth unrhyw le yn y byd ar unrhyw amser. Mae addasiad Ian Wooldridge yn glynu’n agos at y gwreiddiol o safbwynt yr hoffter o’r anifeiliaid a phwysigrwydd y neges.

The End One stupid decision was all it took, the hard man crying over the life he took. Imagine that moment, just being there; anger, a knife then total despair... The End is a devised piece of Forum Theatre put into words by young writer Daniel Platek aged 13. The play takes the topical theme of Knife Crime and highlights how a simple dispute can transform from insignificance into life threatening circumstances. Dyma ddarn dyfeisiedig o Theatr Fforwm a roddwyd mewn geiriau gan yr ysgrifennwr ifanc Daniel Platek sy’n 13 oed. Thema’r ddrama yw trosedd cyllell ac mae’n dangos sut y gall dadl syml drawsffurfio o fod yn rhywbeth syml i fod yn sefyllfa sy’n peryglu bywyd. The play contains scenes of violence, strobe lighting and some use of bad language.

A new play written by Terry Bailey and directed by David Blumfield Two mismatched old men confront mortality - and each other - in this darkly comic play. In a world of shady dealings, it's hard to tell exactly who's using who. Mae dau hen ddyn gwbl wahanol yn wynebu marwolaeth - a’i gilydd - yn y ddrama gomig dywyll hon. Mewn byd o weithredu amheus, mae’n anodd dweud pwy yn union sy’n defnyddio pwy.

hardships as he visited remote communities in his determination to record their timeless traditional music before it became “swamped by the horrors of so-called modern civilisation”. It was considered by many a supreme irony that the resultant collection of meticulously annotated diaries would eventually be mislaid in a convenience store on the outskirts of Wolverhampton. Undaunted by this crushing blow, and having no option other than to draw on his fast fading memories, Peregrine has decided to embark on a series of public lectures in a last ditch attempt to make public some of the gems gleaned from his wanderings Ers blynyddoedd crwydrodd Peregrine N. Barit led y byd gan gofnodi popeth yn fanwl mewn dyddiadur. Pan gollodd y llyfryn gwerthfawr yr unig beth i wneud oedd i ymgymryd â chyfres o ddarlithoedd cyhoeddus er mwyn rhannu’r cyfan cyn ei bod yn rhy hwyr.

Mark Thomas is well versed in the art of creative mayhem and over the years his troublemaking has changed laws, cost companies millions and annoyed those who most deserved to be. Now he returns to what he does best, mischiefjoyously bad behaviour with a purpose. After his award winning show Bravo Figaro Mark sets himself the task of committing 100 Acts of Minor Dissent in the space of a year. Mark catalogues everything from the smallest and silliest gesture to the grandest confrontations and the results are subversive, hilarious, mainly legal and occasionally inspiring. Yn dilyn ei sioe lwyddiannus ddiwethaf, gosododd y digrifwr Mark Thomas y dasg iddo ef ei hun o ymgymryd â 100 Gweithred o Anghydffurfio Mân o fewn blwyddyn.

Henry Blofeld OBE There is so much more to Henry Blofeld than the cosy old Test Match Special commentary box. No one has lived life more to the full. No one's views are more prickly and earth-shatteringly funny. The pompous, the politically correct, the prancing popinjays on every platform of life, are kicked unceremoniously into touch! It's a guinea-a-minute and more than an hour and a half of uncomplicated fun and laughter which makes everyone feel a great deal better. Hanes bywyd llawn ac hynod diddorol y sylwebydd adnabyddus Henry Blofield. Ceir awr a hanner o chwerthin ac hwyl yng nghwmni’r diddanwr ysbrydoledig hwn.

Come and join us during the Santes Dwynwen weekend to meet some of the area’s best companies in the wedding industry, with live music, demos and much more! Dewch draw yn ystod penwythnos Santes Dwynwen i gwrdd â rhai o gwmnÏau gorau'r ardal yn y byd priodasol, gyda cherddoriaeth ac arddangosfeydd byw a llawer mwy! /aberystwytharts

WOW Film Festival returns to Aberystwyth from Friday 21 to Thursday 27 March with our amazing eclectic selection of world cinema for you to enjoy.   Some of the highlights this year include Nairobi Half Life, a rare chance to see a film from Africa this dramatic thriller gives a powerful sense of life in the slums of Nairobi. The visually stunning mountains of Laos provides an evocative backdrop for The Rocket, an engaging, gently memorable film about a determined boy struggling against all the life throws at him. The truly captivating The Patience Stone, a remarkable film about a woman’s life in war-torn Afghanistan. The delightful Winter Nomads about the last shepherds to still follow their flock round the mountains of Switzerland won the Best Documentary Prize at last year’s European Film Awards.

Mae G ˆ wyl Ffilmiau Cymru a’r Byd yn dychwelyd i Aberystwyth o ddydd Gwener 21 tan dydd Iau 27 Mawrth gyda’n detholiad eclectig anhygoel o sinema’r byd i chi ei fwynhau.

 

Mae rhai o’r uchafbwyntiau eleni yn cynnwys Nairobi Half Life, cyfle prin i weld ffilm o Affrica, sy’n cyflwyno portread p ˆ werus o fywyd yn slymiau Nairobi. Mae mynyddoedd ysblennydd Laos yn darparu cefndir hynod effeithiol i The Rocket, ffilm ddifyr, addfwyn am fachgen ifanc yn brwydro yn erbyn anawsterau bywyd. Mae The Patience Stone yn ffilm wirioneddol wych am fywyd dynes sy’n byw yng nghanol rhyfel yn Afghanistan. Enillodd y ffilm hyfryd Winter Nomads, am y bugeiliaid olaf i ddilyn eu preiddiau o gwmpas mynyddoedd y Swistir, y wobr am Ffilm Ddogfen Orau yng Ngwobrau Ffilm Ewropeaidd y llynedd.

A Universal Archive: William Kentridge as Printmaker William Kentridge is one of South Africa’s preeminent artists, internationally acclaimed for his films, drawings, theatre and opera productions; regular visitors will recall our exhibition of his film work in the Gallery. Kentridge is also an innovative and prolific printmaker. In the past two and a half decades he has produced more than 400 artist’s prints, including etchings, engravings, aquatints, silkscreens, linocuts and lithographs; many of his key themes are explored in his prints and he has said that there have been ‘many projects that have ended up as either a piece of theatre or an animated film which have their origins in printmaking’. This exhibition from the South Bank includes prints from 1988 to the present, with a stress on experimental and serial works. His distinctive use of light, shadow and silhouettes, his concern with memory and perspective, themes of humanity’s journey through life and his absorption in literary texts, are all strongly in evidence. There is an education/resource pack to accompany this exhibition.

William Kentridge yw un o artistiaid blaenllaw De Affrica, sydd ag enw da yn rhyngwladol am ei ffilmiau, arlunio, cynyrchiadau theatr ac opera; bydd ymwelwyr rheolaidd yn cofio ein harddangosfa o’i waith ffilm yn yr Oriel. Mae Kentridge hefyd yn wneuthurwr print dyfeisgar a chynhyrchiol. Yn ystod y ddau ddegawd a hanner diwethaf mae wedi cynhyrchu dros 400 o brintiau artistiaid, yn cynnwys ysgythriadau, engrafiadau, acwatintau, sgriniau sidan, printiau leino a lithograffau; archwilir llawer o’i themâu allweddol yn ei brintiau a dywed fod gan lawer o’i brosiectau sydd wedi gorffen i fyny fel unai darn o theatr neu ffilm animeiddiedig eu gwreiddiau mewn gwneuthur print. Mae’r arddangosfa hon o Fanc y De yn cynnwys printiau o 1988 hyd at y presennol, gyda phwyslais ar weithiau arbrofol a chyfresol. Mae ei ddefnydd nodweddiadol o olau, cysgod a silwetau, ei gonsyrn gyda chof a pherspectif, themâu teithio trwy fywyd a’i ddiddordeb mewn testunau llenyddol, i gyd yn amlwg yma. Mae pecyn addysg/adnoddau ar gael i gydfynd â'r arddangosfa hon.

The British Wildlife Photography Awards

Designs on Delivery

These stunning images by so many talented photographers highlight the diversity, breadth and beauty of our precious wildlife and the need to protect their habitats.

This exhibition of posters focuses on a period with designers such as Edward McKnight Kauffer, Tom Eckersley, Leonard Beaumont and F. K. Henrion and the General Post Office was at the cutting edge of poster design and mass communication.

Mae’r delweddau syfrdanol hyn gan gymaint o ffotograffwyr talentog yn pwysleisio amrywiaeth, ehangder a phrydferthwch ein bywyd gwyllt gwerthfawr a’r angen i amddiffyn ei gynefinoedd.

GPO Posters from 1930 to 1960

The power of advertising was used to promote the GPO as a service and necessity; as poster design began to expand in the early twentieth century the General Post Office increasingly used this medium and its rising stars to communicate sometimes complex messages via colour, brief text and image. Posteri’r Swyddfa Bost o 1930 tan 1960 Mae’r arddangosfa hon o bosteri yn ffocysu ar gyfnod pan ‘roedd dylunwyr megis Edward McKnight Kauffer, Tom Eckersley, Leonard Beaumont a F. K. Henrion yn gweithio ac ‘roedd y Swyddfa Bost Gyffredinol yn arloesi ym maes dylunio posteri a moddau cyfathrebu. Defnyddwyd grym hysbysebu i hyrwyddo’r Swyddfa Bost fel gwasanaeth ac angenrhaid; wrth i ddylunio posteri ddechrau ehangu yn gynnar yn yr ugeinfed ganrif bu’r Swyddfa Bost yn gynyddol yn defnyddio’r cyfrwng hwn i gyfathrebu negeseuon, weithiau’n gymhleth, trwy liw, testun byr a delwedd.

Roger Tiley: The Manufactured Coast Roger Tiley undertook a year-long photographic study, supported by an award from the Arts Council of Wales, to document the Welsh industrial coast-scape. The aim of the project was to explore how industry has made and continues to make a mark on the coastline of Wales. All of the images for this project were recorded during twilight and night time, using exposures of up to an hour.

Did you know that game was once allowed to be sent through the post with nothing but a neck label? The Post Office was once Britain’s largest employer and this exhibition shows some of the BPMA’s unique collection of photographs, demonstrating the importance of the ‘postie’ in everyone’s lives. A wyddoch chi y caniatawyd i adar hela gael eu hanfon trwy’r post gyda dim ond label o gwmpas y gwddf? Y Swyddfa Bost ar un adeg oedd cyflogwr mwyaf Prydain ac mae’r arddangosfa hon yn dangos rhan o gasgliad ffotograffau unigryw yr Amgueddfa ac Archif Bost Brydeinig, yn pwysleisio pwysigrwydd y dyn post ym mywydau pawb.

‘My intention to photograph at night was to breakdown the notion of what most people see during daylight hours and, in a way, use a blank canvas in order to paint light on to the subject’. Ymgymerodd Roger Tiley ag astudiaeth ffotograffig am flwyddyn, gyda chefnogaeth grant oddi wrth Gyngor Celfyddydau Cymru, i gofnodi ‘r arfordir diwydiannol Cymreig. Bwriad y prosiect oedd i archwilio sut mae diwydiant wedi gwneud, ac yn parhau i wneud, ei farc ar arfordir Cymru. Recordiwyd yr holl ddelweddau ar gyfer y prosiect hwn yn ystod yr hwyrddydd a’r nos, yn defnyddio fframau ffilm oedd yn para hyd at awr. ‘Fy mwriad wrth ffotograffu yn y nos oedd i dorri i lawr y syniad o’r hyn y mae’r rhan fwyaf o bobl yn gweld yn ystod oriau golau dydd ac, mewn ffordd, i ddefnyddio cynfas gwag er mwyn paentio golau dros y gwrthrych.’
